Wow,  that wasn't a very good amount of copies sold.  Granted,   this game probably wasn't very expensive to make,  as it's a standard point and click adventure game without polyganol graphics or cutting edge tech,  but still, they coudn't have made much profit on it, despite all the critical acclaim the Longest Journey received.
